To cut a very long story short I made a start on culling my stash of craft materials or at the very least storing it better. There were times when I wished that I had never started but there was also a lot of joy as I remembered some previous projects. There was fabric from when each of the grandchildren were born, flowers from weddings and christenings the list goes on. It was like opening the boxes of Christmas decor and remembering the places and people around each piece. I remember now why this particular cull didn't take place prior to our move. So once again it is staying.
The drawers and cupboard are now complete, they have been waxed and are now ready to be moved from the barn upstairs. But this means the train diorama must come down so we need help to get it all into position. I am thankful we have good neighbours.
I did find some unfinished projects that need work and those will now take priority. Honeys blanket has slowed down considerably of late.
A second shawl has been started and never finished.
The same for a knitted cowl, a second was started and never finished.
A baby blanket and baby bootees were a surprise, I don't remember who I started them for...who knows!
I prepared the meat for dinner this evening early this morning it is all ready to be popped into the oven with some vegetables. Pork fillet wrapped in bacon stuffed with apricot and ginger stuffing, a firm favourite of ours using the Hairy Bikers recipe.
Well onwards and upwards I have sat for a short break so will get on with the front lawn and do some weeding. The weeds are prolific in the pots and tyres, all this rain helps their growth. I will catch up with you later, I am back outside to enjoy the Summer which took its time to arrive. Almost forgot there's chocolate cake with strawberries if you want to join me for afternoon tea.
See you soon.
